Fruits of Our Labour

Holmgren’s third permaculture principle is “obtain a yield.” Autumn is when a lot of yield happens. It’s a great time of year.

Another way to appreciate yield is to plant a fruit tree and then wait for years until it bears fruit. We’ve planted over 200 fruit trees over the last three years and it’s gratifying to see many of them producing, which includes: peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, lemons, oranges, grapefruit, figs, feijoas, apples, and guavas.

But we’re still waiting for the big payoff: avocados!

Peace, Estwing
